Rickie Wyman, Grade 12
New Orleans Charter Science and Math Academy

Which Advanced Placement courses have you already taken?
English Language and U.S. History

Which AP courses are you currently enrolled in?
English Literature, Environmental Science, Calculus, and World History. I also took English 101 at Tulane over the summer, and I have taken classes through Bard College and Delgado.

How do you balance that kind of workload? Did you experience in AP classes last year help you to prepare for the increased workload this year?
Classes are going pretty well. Calculus is my most challenging course. Last year’s classes really prepared me though. We wrote a ten page paper for U.S. History and that prepared me for all the same writing assignments I have in my other classes.

What are your college choices at the moment?
My first choice is the University of Miami, then Boston University. I also turned in my application to LSU.

Will you apply for any scholarships?
Yes, I have already applied for a few. I will try for TOPS and will be applying for several other scholarships.

How has AdvanceNOLA benefited you?
AdvanceNOLA has always offered tutoring. It has helped me to learn study strategies to get good grades and pass the AP tests.

Which Advanced Placement courses have you already taken?
U.S. History and English Language

Which AP courses are you currently enrolled in?
English Literature, World History, Calculus, and Biology

How do you balance that kind of workload? Do you think your experience in AP classes last year prepared you for this?
It’s going great. I made the honor roll last semester. I think last year prepared me because I know what to expect on tests and coursework.

What are your college choices at the moment?
Boston University, University of Miami, LSU, Loyola University New Orleans, and Tulane University. I would really like to apply to a lot of schools.

How has the AdvanceNOLA benefited you, helped you to achieve your goals, and help you shape your mindset about the future?
It will probably be a lot harder in college than in high school and I think I am now prepared for it because of these classes. Last year we attended a workshop with a teacher that has taught the courses over the years. They gave us a lot of tips for the test and helped us learn the material better. It has really provided me a lot of skills that I need to be successful.
